This happens to be my 100th blog post, and amazingly, I got my 100th email subscriber to this blog last week. (Believe it or not, this isn’t the least bit contrived!) This seems too cool to let it pass without a little celebration, so I’m going to give away one of my favourite homeschool resources.

I’m a huge Apologia fan, and this giveaway is for any one of their elementary series text books—winner’s choice.


We’ve used every one of the Apologia elementary books—except for the Chemistry book which we will be going through next school year—and we’ve also gone through the General Science and Physical Science texts for grades 7 and 8.

Why do I love Apologia Science? I love that the elementary books delve deep, and over the course of a school year they make my children mini experts on the field we are studying. People are surprised by how much science gets covered in these books, but in my experience this doesn’t overwhelm children but gives them an appreciation for the magnitude of the topic.

The depth of study fascinates kids. This science curriculum is helping me meet my goal of raising up life-long learners. My children love science. Nuff said.

Here is a link to the Apologia elementary books. There are journals available too, but my kids really enjoy doing the lapbook kits available here. And for those of us who don’t enjoy shopping for science experiments…there are kits available here that contain almost everything you need for the experiments—including tape, timers, and dish soap!

To enter the giveaway just leave me a comment below. Get a second entry for subscribing to my blog. (Current subscribers get an extra entry too. I love you guys!) You can also get additional entries for sharing this post on facebook, twitter, or your blog. Just let me know how many entries you have in the comment section.

The contest ends midnight March 31. (Pacific Time)

Have an amazing week!

P.S. ~ These books are awesome for non-homeschoolers too.
